Cole Swindell Posts Hilarious ‘Happy Gilmore’ GIF About Dustin Johnson ‘Running Away’ With Masters

by Will Shepard

Country superstar Cole Swindell weighed in on Dustin Johnson’s Masters Tournament success Sunday. Dustin Johnson is playing out of his mind at this year’s tournament in Georgia and as a result, Swindell is quite happy with how the tournament is going for the golf superstar.

Swindell responds to a tweet of radio host, Bobby Bones winning some pretty decent money on Johnson.

Swindell utilizes the incredible gif of Shooter McGavin sprinting away with the gold jacket in “Happy Gilmore.” The singer is obviously likening his play to the iconic movie.

Bones’ bet pays off pretty big for the radio host. Additionally, this gif is a perfect reiteration of how Johnson is playing this tournament. Although the context of this gif might be in a different fashion, the hilarious clip sums up the tournament beautifully.

Dustin Johnson Makes History

However, Johnson really is earning this jacket. In the movie, Happy Gilmore, Shooter actually steals the jacket from the true winner. In truth, Johnson really is taking the jacket from everyone else in the tournament. After blowing away the field day after day, he is walking away quite easily with the win.

To be sure, winning the Masters is no easy feat. Johnson is doing so in record style. A once in a lifetime Masters that is entirely unique to this year, the tournament has some incredible moments.

First, Tiger famously shoots a career-worst 10 on a par 3 to ruin his tournament. Jack Niklaus and Gary Player begin the tournament in a heart-wrenching fashion by teeing off together. And finally, Johnson shoots a -20 total over 72 holes to take home the famous green jacket.

Johnson breaks a number of long-standing records this year. First, he sets a new Masters record of the fewest total bogeys in tournament history at 4. This record alone is impressive.

Next, he sets a new mark of 11 straight under-par rounds at Augusta, beating Tiger Woods. Yet another one, the golfer sets the tournament low score of 268. All in all one of the most dominant showings ever seen on one of golf’s biggest stage.

Finally Johnson wins the Masters and adds another accomplishment to his already impressive resume.
